About Mandarin Athletic Association
Mandarin Athletic Association (MAA) is one of Jacksonville’s oldest and well established youth sports organizations—A non-profit, premier athletic association that offers year-round football, cheer, and lacrosse for young athletes in the Greater Jacksonville area. Consisting of approximately 1,500 young athletes from age five to fourteen, we have been teaching football, cheer, flag football and lacrosse for more than 43 years in Mandarin. MAA mentors our young athletes on the importance of academics, team work, confidence, and respect, honesty, and play fair. We also emphasize the importance of having a joyful experience that isn’t necessary based on winning and being the best athlete on the field, rather doing one’s best. This is all accomplished through the endless commitment of our coaches and volunteers.
